ICANN - Looking ahead: Challenges and opportunities

19 December 2017 - A Open Forum on Other in Geneva, Switzerland


This Open and Interactive Session will consider a range of areas ICANN is addressing including ongoing accountability work; the work of the Community in preparing for a potential new application process for gTLDs; the on-going work with respect to emerging Data Protection (DP) and privacy developments including the implementation of new DP legislation in Europe (GDPR).
It will also briefly consider challenges posed to ICANN, and opportunities afforded, by the external environment ICANN works in; not least with respect to discussions in the UN (CSTD) on “Enhanced Cooperation”.  
The Forum will also be an opportunity for some technical updates related to the Key Rollover Programme (which will have taken place) KSK and other DNS Security, Resilience and Reliability issues. 

The Forum will allow plenty of time for comment, discussion and interaction on these and other subjects delegates may want to discuss.
